MTN gifts GHC30k to kids at Kumasi Children’s Home


Telecom giant MTN-Ghana on Wednesday, December 11, presented a cheque of GHC 30, 000.00 to the management of the Kumasi Children’s Home.

The gesture, according to the acting General Manager-Northern Business District, Mr Simon Amoh is to aid care givers cater for the needs of the children and inmates at the home.

Mr Amoh revealed that the amount presented was part of proceeds generated from the MTN Stands in Worship Concert recently held to celebrate the goodness of God on the famous telecommunications brand.

He noted that the Kumasi Children’s Home was chosen to benefit from the proceeds because the outfit had laid a request to MTN to show them some kindness.

‘’We raised this money during the MTN stands in Worship Concert and the idea was to distribute same to homes and orphanages that had requested for support from our quarters’’, Mr Amoh posited.


The acting Manager noted that as a company, MTN takes delight in helping the needy and the destitute.

According to him, realizing that December is a month of care it was needful that MTN extended a hand of support to outfits such as the Kumasi Children’s Home.

MTN, he stressed would continue to look out for the good of its customers and the Ghanaian populace.

The brand, he admitted had become a household name because of its customers, adding that MTN was committed to giving back to the society that continues to patronize its products and services.

‘’Every brand thrives when people patronize either the service or product it represents and MTN having seen customers patronize its products and services also gives back to help the needy in society’’, Mr Amoh intimated.

Home Manager

Speaking succinctly after receiving the cheque on behalf of the kids, Mrs Mabel Amponsah, Head of the Kumasi Children’s Home thanked MTN for the gesture.

She noted that the donation was timely since the Home has had to deal with so many challenges on its own.

Even though she admitted it’s a government supported facility, she said support from individuals and benevolent organizations helps to cater for pressing needs.

Madam Amponsah disclosed that the home currently has 77 inmates, 30girls and 47 males whose ages ranged between 3-weeks baby to an adult of 28 years.
